Convento brown ware types which are also referred to as Casas Grandes brown ware are tan in color. These types exhibit characteristics and variation similar to that noted on Mogollon brown ware types produced in the Mogollon Highlands to the north. Casas Grandes plain wares can have a variety of exterior surface treatments, including scoring, smoothing, polishing, incising, punched, and corrugated treatments.
